The African Film Festival

Dallas, TX 75370

TAFF is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization created to give back to the African Independent film community. This is one of its kind to showcase films and arts that are influenced by African stories; or films and arts made by people of African descent. TAFF would showcase the artistry and the tireless efforts of some of the best independent filmmakers, while “Bridging cultures through film and arts” by inviting a diverse audience, to celebrate some of the best films about the African continent.

TAFF was created by an African Independent filmmaker for African Independent filmmakers, whose films have been catalogued in Ivy league universities such as Harvard, Yale and Stanford, amongst others. Our goal is to make more African films available at such schools and public libraries to further the studies of African history and culture. TAFF is listed with the Texas Film Commission, the Dallas Film Commission, and the City of Dallas Arts District. Grand finale takes place at the Dallas City Performance Hall in the Arts District of Downtown Dallas.
